Enforcement Directorate officials on Tuesday launched a search at the residence in the city of a contractor who provides trucks for transporting liquor from Tasmac godowns to retail outlets.

A two-member team from the ED’s Bengaluru office began the search at 10 a.m. at the residence of Sachidanandam on Sakthi Nagar Third Street at Thindal.

A team of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel and policemen from the Erode Taluk station were posted in front of the house for security.

The action came after Income Tax officials searched his residence and office for four days in May, seizing documents and cash and taking him to the banks for checking his lockers.

Sources said the contractor is an associate of Minister for Electricity, Excise and Prohibition V. Senthilbalaji.
